When it comes to luxury travel bags it's that intractable balance - functionality vs. design - a bag that makes the style grade but gets the job done without a hitch. On that note, we're rather fond of the new Acqua di Parma leather collection.

Handcrafted in Italy using buffalo leather and lined with Acqua di Parma yellow cotton, these are the sort of bags that only get better with time.
From the roomy but compact 48-hour bag, to the laptop-ready business bag, the waterproof toiletries pouch, and the leather-clad travel organizer, the nine-piece collection easily complements any lifestyle. Time to throw out the old baggage as it were.
